SAIC Inc. has realigned its operations, combining two operating units so the company will be structured around three business groups and keep it focused on high growth markets.
Effective Aug. 2, the Information Technology and Network Solutions Group, currently led by Charles Koontz, will become part of the Infrastructure, Energy, Health and Product Solutions Group, which will be led by Joe Craver, group president.
Koontz will become executive vice president for strategic projects, reporting to SAIC Chief Executive Officer Walt Havenstein.
The other two units are Defense Solutions Group, led by Group President Deb Alderson; and the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group, led by Stu Shea.
Larry Cox, senior vice president and general manager of the Intelligence and Information Solutions Business Unit, will lead the company’s cybersecurity program and also report to Havenstein.
Other changes include:
- Jim Cuff, senior vice president for business development, has been promoted to executive vice president and will continue to lead corporate business development, and also direct strategy, and mergers and acquisitions.
- Tony Moraco, currently senior vice president and general manager of the space and geospatial intelligence business unit (SGIBU), has been promoted to executive vice president for operations and performance excellence, responsible for enterprisewide business support services and operational efficiency and effectiveness initiatives.
- Deborah Lee James, currently senior vice president and general manager of the command, control, communications, computers and information technology business unit, has been promoted to executive vice president for communications and government affairs and will also lead corporate responsibility.
- Vince Maffeo, executive vice president and general counsel, will assume responsibility for contracts, pricing and procurement, and enterprise risk management.
“This new organizational structure supports our strategy to focus business resources in high growth areas in national security, energy, health markets and cybersecurity,” Havenstein said.
SAIC is ranked No. 5 on the 2010 Washington Technology Top 100 list of the largest government contractors.
